Man Dies From COVID-19 After Repeatedly Dismissing Pandemic As “Hype”
- A man from Ohio named Richard Rose recently passed away days after testing positive of coronavirus.
- The 37-year-old has downplayed the outbreak as a “hype” and swore he will not buy a mask.
- His friends hope his story would serve as a warning for others.
In his Facebook posts, Richard Rose has frequently expressed his disbelief about the coronavirus pandemic. At one point, he wrote he isn’t “buying into the damn hype” and will never get a mask despite all the reminders from health authorities.
Eventually, he ended up contracting the dreaded disease. He tested positive just last July 1 after showing several symptoms. On July 4, he passed away at his home in Port Clinton, Ohio.
Richard Rose, 37 years old, died several days after testing positive of coronavirus.
His last social media post read, “This covid sh*t sucks! I’m so out of breath just sitting here.”
Richard’s earlier rants, however, were the ones that received a lot of attention from netizens online.
Case in point, he bashed the Black Lives Matter protests that followed the death of George Floyd. In fact, he called the movement a “joke.” He also lambasted face coverings worn by those belonging to the Islamic faith.
Richard dismissed the pandemic as a “damn hype,” swearing he will not wear a mask despite what others say.
Now his friends are hoping that his story would serve as a warning for everyone that the virus is real.
In a media interview, his friend Nick Conley later said:
“It’s horrible that we lost Rick but the even more tragic part of that is who else became infected because of the actions that he chose. Rick is getting slaughtered online right now for his decision that he made not to wear a mask and that’s not right.”
